"The Palestinian move is based on international law and human rights – exactly the opposite of what the U.S.-led so-called peace process is based on, which is Israeli power."

– Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, discussing positive and negative consequences for Palestinians' decision on whether to seek United Nations statehood.

Mahmoud Abbas, chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, or PLO, and president of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, is traveling to the opening session of the United Nations in New York this week, where he says he intends to apply for membership as the world's 194th state in the UN Security Council. If he does, the U.S. has promised to use its veto to defeat the proposal. Further, the U.S. consul general in Jerusalem, Daniel Rubinstein, has stated that the U.S. would cut aid to the Palestinian Authority if the PLO moves ahead with its U.N. bid for statehood.  Story continues

During his Sept. 8 speech before a joint session of Congress promoting the White House jobs program, President Obama called for billions of dollars in spending on infrastructure projects and other government programs to stimulate the creation of jobs in an economy plagued by a 9.1 percent unemployment rate. During the address, Obama also called for congressional passage of three controversial free trade pacts, stating “It’s time to clear the way for a series of trade agreements that would make it easier for American companies to sell their products in Panama, Colombia and South Korea.”  Story continues
